The Julius Indictment III

End of the Month Rent Check

Bacon and pickles as a sandwich with Swiss today
Because nothing matters anymore except taste
And unbeknownst to New Guy Joe
I am closer in age to his oddly-present mother than
To New Guy Joe himself - inconsequential digression

Allergic Andrew asks what I've been working on
As he lists film, Web, and business ventures juggled
My response stings unsatisfactorily bitter
More to myself than to Allergic Andrew
Like the prick of the spring-loaded EpiPen

The Russian Boss is making something in a crock pot
Shuffled soundtrack of songs that try to save my life
But a spectacle of perverse interest nonetheless
And sometimes somewhere a bit is a bit
A riff somewhere between genius and madness

King of The Underground & Secret Places

"By the way...I have extremely vivid dreams most nights, and I remember them in minute detail...I had a dream that I drove out to meet you in your town. Strangely, you lived in my old house. We hung out for a bit, then you said you knew a secret place and you wanted to show it to me. We drove out into the countryside and found a storm drain entrance. It led to a giant underground store-room filled with every style of sneaker imaginable, each pair resting on a podium, illuminated by a flood-light. You told me I could take whichever one I want. When I picked the pair I wanted and lifted it off the podium, a replacement pair immediately appeared and filled the empty space."

Henry served as a professor on the Faculty of Cornell University's Department of Human Development and Family Studies from 1958-1988, and as a highly active Emeritus Professor from 1988-2011, a period of 53 years. His great passion was research and teaching in the field of early childhood development, especially the factors associated with cognitive and emotional development of infants and young children. He was highly respected in his field, publishing numerous articles and leading national and international research studies, serving as the first Steering Committee Chair of the NIH Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (1989-1991). He served twice as Department Chairman (1970-73, 1982-86), mentored many graduate students and colleagues, and was asked to participate in or lead numerous university-wide committees. In 2001, he received the Society for Research in Child Development Award for Distinguished Contributions to Public Policy for Children. Prior to joining the Cornell faculty he served as Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut, Research Associate at the Educational Testing Service, and Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Medical School. He received his BS, MA and Ph.D. degrees (Psychology, 1949) from Fordham University and served in the US Army from 1943-46. Henry possessed a curious mind that sought to explain the world around him, a great generosity of spirit, and a deep religious faith. He loved his family, music, photography, Cornell University basketball and the New York Yankees.

Ask Ty...March 10 [Boobs!]

It must be Tuesday Thursday, Middlespace Cadets, because I'm answering your questions
Q: Dear Ty,

You may be aware that some men, when speaking with a woman, tend to look down at the woman's breasts and then back up to her face/eyes, sometimes doing this multiple times during a single--even brief--exchange.  Do you think that they are aware that they are doing this? Do you think that it is involuntary? Do you think that they think we don't notice...or that we do, and that we take the intermittent gaze-dropping as a compliment?


- 34C But Still Worth A Listen

Ty: Huh? Were you saying something? Just kiddink! I make joke, like Russians. We make party pretty ting.

Good question and an even better observation, 34C. And your "good question" today is actually a bonus of several embedded "good questions," but before I break this down into manageable components, let me first make a correction to your "even better observation."

You wrote "...some men, when speaking to a woman, tend to look down at the woman's breasts..." You are completely incorrect here that I must interject. The actual and real (socialist/liberal) science fact is that ALL men look at woman's breasts whenever they can. Some just don't get caught as often. Correction complete.

Significantly all men look at breasts. It's a normal behavior. As normal as...sunlight glistening on the moist, supple mounds of...uh, apples. As normal as apples.

Now to the questions, 34C [and so I know what I'm talking about/dealing with, let me go to the Googles and look up "34C" so we all know what we're working with]:
1) Do you think that [men] are aware that they are doing this?
Yes and no. I believe that men do sometimes catch themselves engaging in this seemingly unseemly behavior. But then it comes down to self-control issues. Some men lack discipline and social grace. There's your difference; classy, fit gentlemen are discreet. Dirty, creepy pigs ogle. There are many, many men (and women) who lack a certain facility over their self-monitoring centers.
2) Do you think that [this behavior] is involuntary?
Here's where our discussion goes off the rails because I'm going to say that it's evolutionary and the creationism goon squad will drag me away to Pentecostal (snakes in a van!) re-education camp before sunrise.
But because of Satan's socialist ape-evolution, male brains are hard-wired to seek and sort potential mating partners (as are women, but this isn't about women). One of the selection criteria for males is breasts. It's a shortcut to assess breeding age maturation. Problem is, as our brains sophisticated, reflexive processing perverted, or diminished. So many men now equate bigger with somehow being more desirable when the reflex only existed to notice if the apple was ripe: why clearly augmented breasts appeal to some men.
Men subconsciously judge a whole list of criteria (as do women) in potential partner picking, but breasts are easy. They're just out front that way. Conversely, some literature suggests that the quik-n-ez key to women's selection/sorting of male suitors is the buttocks.
I could go into the whole "Ass Man" thing too--because socialist science smugly explains that too--but, I ain't got time for that now.
3) Do you think that they think we don't notice...or that we do, and that we take the intermittent gaze-dropping as a compliment?
Well, again, it's the self-control matter. I would guess that most men of a certain intelligence threshold understand that women notice this. On a scale-of-caring whether women notice, some men don't register. I think the "it's a compliment" line is defensive excusing; all blaming the victim because she wore that top nonsense. Have some class, fellas!
Anyway, were you talking? I was looking at this 34C here: [clicky]

Just a guess.


It feels like the decline

Bad news clowns and bad
Memory dress removal
Public service superheroes
Needn't constant peer approval

So do what my father told me
And roll with them punches
Stay above them frays
Only poor kids get free lunches

Called "Oreo" and "Faggot"
and "Nigger" and "Mental"
Nothing cut me up deep like
"not working to potential"

So maybe this is the dying
In what looks like a 360
When we get too sick of trying
Give us over into The Mixy


All human actions have one or more of these seven causes

"Understand that your artist may not change clothes for a couple days, or might forget to shave. Your artist might not care if hair ever gets cut. Leave your artist to know when to clean up."

"Your artist may not be willing or able to show you what they're working on at the beginning stages of production. And for some, any initial criticism or reaction can stop a work dead in its tracks."

"Your artist may experience surges of creativity or manic production where the compulsion to make art overrides everything else."
